SOURCE: I have a Dell Latitude D620 and the monitor won't

eather the bulb in the display went bad, or the video driver board, both of which are inside the top of the computer, and should be repaired by a qualified tech. you can run it on a vga crt mon. if you use it at home, but thats your problem, sorry it couldn't be a little more cheerful news and a easy fix.

SOURCE: How to Get a good Dell Latitude D520 Laptop

it sounds like you did the right thing, i would search google for "Dell D520 keyboard", you should find many places at different prices, if you havent bought from the site before, try reading some customer feedback, and also, the cheapest may not be the best, look for a good return policy and or warranty for the item. if this helps pleas give a fixya rating thanks

SOURCE: dell latitude D610. Screen goes black. External Monitor OK.

Make sure you have not accidentally used the FN+F5 key
That combination sets the laptop to use an external display.

If using that does not give you a display take a small torch (flashlight if in USA) and shine it at an angle on the laptop screen.
If you can see any sort of picture you would be looking at replacement of some minor parts to the laptop screen

Hope this gives you the information you need. If not add any extra information you may have and lets see if we can FixYa


It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our expert’s answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.

Thank you

Me dell latitude e 5400 works when the power cord is pluged in but it wont charge the battery. battery status says it on line , critical , and says it has 3% left

Well, It seems you have a bad battery, try to buy a new one, and make sure you leave this new battery charging for at least 12 hours, If your laptop is still under warranty check if dell can give you a new one.

Have a nice day.

Every time I move my laptop a little bit, lines appear along the bottom of the screen. Also, sometimes the screen shifts when I'm using the mouse ever since those lines began appearing. What are possible...

Well this could be several things first, I have seen this before in a mac book lines would appear on the screen if I moved the monitor a tad. I think it would be a safe bet that there is a short in your monitor and screen replacements are not easy but can be done. Usually costs 100 or less In my opinion you can get a really nice upgrade from your Dell for about 3 to 400 dollars

I have an older Dell Latitude PPX CPi that has nothing but lines on the screen. I hooked up an external monitor and it works fine. Swapped out LCD assembly with another PPX that I know had a good display...

The inverter is probably the most common failure on most laptop models and if you changed the LCD and the lines didn't go away, the inverter is the only thing that can cause them.

Dell latitude d630 has blue/green /multi color veritcal lines .. nothing else..did my laptop crash? I cannot get to my desk top.

Sounds like the display is damaged. Connect a standard monitor to the VGA port. If the monitor works then you need to replace your display. You should be able to find a replacement display at eBay.

If the standard monitor does not work you have to replace the notebook motherboard which you can also find on eBay.
Remember to take digital pictures as you disassemble your notebook so you know how to put it back together.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.
